Google Maps 4.11 for Nokia E71

Google Maps for Mobile for Nokia E71 has been updated to 4.11. While new features to Google Maps were added for Andriod, Blackberry and IPhone the update for the Symbian phones was long overdue.

Features of Google Maps for E71

Some of the features that have been added to Nokia E71 are

  • Voice search ability which works like a charm. Sitting here in Chandigarh, India I could locate restaurants, local taxi and movie theaters. Isn’t that cool. I gave the commands in normal English (which means with Indian accent) and still Google Maps got it right! It is amazing. Further I could use the feature over a normal mobile connection. To know what kind of searches work on Google Maps for Mobile search refer to the page here.
  • There is a redesigned settings page with Search by voice language choices. Various options are available and you can choose any one. There are quite a few foreign languages.
  • There are some additional layers that have been added to the Maps.

How to install Google Maps on Nokia E71

The following steps need to be taken

  • Using the inbuilt mobile browser (shortcut press and hold the’0’ key) browse to m.google.com/maps
  • You will get a link to install Google Maps. Click the link
  • A popup will inform you about starting the download. Save the file on either your memory card (proffered) or your phone memory.
  • Run the installation. You are done njoy!

Go ahead and flaunt the voice search which will surely surprise some of your friends and family. Nokia E71 is still cool in this day and age – thanks Nokia and Google!

Future on E71byNokia blog

I have not been blogging about Nokia E71 since a long time. I did add a new post today. I believe the interest in Nokia E71 has waned over the years with the introduction of other smartphones. However, the phone has served me well.

I wanted to know from the blog readers whether I should continue posting on this blog or should I retire the blog. Please take out the time and let me know what do you think.

Thanks in advance.

Nokia E71 photo group on Flickr

Flickr is one of the favorite destination for photography enthusiasts. Groups can be created in Flickr and there is a Nokia E71 group. The group has photographs clicked with a Nokia E7. There are some amazing photographs there. It is also a nice place to share photographs taken using your Nokia E71.

Nokia E71 photo quality

image of a child taken with Nokia E71What is surprising is that I remember initially the photographs taken with a Nokia E71 had a purple tint but the photos in the Nokia E71 group on Flickr seem to be fine and do not have the purple tinge. That means Nokia has improved its firmware over the years.
I was amazed at the quality of this picture on the group. . Browse the images in the group and some of them will impress you. Another thing I noticed was that the 'purple effect' that was there with earlier images taken with Nokia E71 is not there anymore. Do other users also find that to be the case?
If you have a Nokia E71 please click a photo using your phone as a picture is worth more than 1000 words.
